Confused CV19 Note from French Govt on NSAID-SAID in Ibuprofen Ban

In this article, France confuses steroids with non-steroidal anti-inflamatories.  The ignorance of this is unimaginable.

Steroids, long ago, were found to be dangerous during viral infections.  They are great for inflammation but make both viral and bacterial infections worse.

The French don’t recognize this or failed to address it and fail to supply any support for their ban on Ibuprofen.  It is the ‘go to’ treatment in the US for children and adults for pain and inflammation due to viral infections but France just banned it for COVID, saying it makes things worse.

We aren’t sure we believe them as their information came with serious flaws.

The use of the term “paracetamol” which typically describes a blend of tylenol and opiates, typically Oxycodone or Hydrocodone, refers to medications unavailable in much of the world and dangerous to those at risk of liver damage.

Thus far, no one in the US can think of any medical reason for the French statement but VT never advises the use of Acetaminophen because an overdose will absolutely kill you dead as a door nail.

France Warns Against Use of Anti-Inflammatory Drugs to Tackle Coronavirus


PARIS — France’s health minister on Saturday said people should not use anti-inflammatory drugs if they have coronavirus-like symptoms because it could worsen their condition.

“Taking anti-inflammatory drugs (ibuprofen, cortisone …) could be an aggravating factor for the infection. If you have a fever, take paracetamol,” Oliver Veran said on Twitter.

President Emmanuel Macron announced on Thursday school closures and urged people to avoid close contact for fear of propagating the virus that has killed 79 people in France and infected more than 3,600.

    The confused person here is Gordon Duff. He should stick to what he knows best and leave things pharmaceutical to people knowledgeable in medicine and pharmacy
